FAIRFAX, VA...Celebrating today's 25th anniversary of the Nintendo U.S. release of the Game Boy, OverClocked ReMix has released its 49th arrangement album, and its first-ever system-focused album, Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary. Directed by Brandon Strader and Alexandre "Chernabogue" Mourey with nostalgic pixel artwork by The Coop, the album features 16 artists producing 15 arrangements in a variety of styles based on a diverse selection of titles from the legendary portable gaming system.

Created by the late Gunpei Yokoi, the original Game Boy and its updated versions such as the Game Boy Color sold over 118 million units. Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary includes tributes to cornerstone Game Boy launch titles Super Mario Land and Tetris, major franchises like Zelda, Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, Mega Man and Pokémon, as well as many lesser-known Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles with great scores including Batman, Astérix, SolarStriker, and Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors.

Legacy is available for free download at http://gameboy25.ocremix.org. This album was produced to help promote the music and composers of Game Boy games, was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo or any of the publishers or developers of the original games; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"It was an honor to work on this amazing musical tribute to the Game Boy with some of the greatest remixers I'll ever know," said director Brandon Strader. "This album brings back a lot of great memories -- I hope you will find it to be a fitting tribute to the Game Boy, several great games, and the legacy of Gunpei Yokoi."

Legacy is OC ReMix's fourth album organized by Brandon Strader. Strader is currently directing albums honoring the NES installments of Final Fantasy II and III, directorial sequels to his 2012 album, Final Fantasy: Random Encounter.
